Why Spay or Neuter your Pet?

It is Good for You!

Spaying/Neutering Your Pet Is Good For You! Did you know that spaying or neutering your pet may stop unwanted behavior?

  • Sadly, some owners feel that they have no option but to surrender their pets to shelters because they simply cannot handle some unwanted behaviors. Yet spaying or neutering your pet can reduce or eliminate these behaviors, making both you and your pet happier.
  • Your spayed female dog or cat will no longer go through heat cycles.
  • Female dogs in heat may be more likely to show aggression to other females.
  • Female cats in heat will typically “yowl” and urinate frequently.
  • Neutering your male pet will reduce the breeding instinct and the behavior that goes along with it – spraying or marking territory with urine, aggressive behavior, and the drive to escape from your home and roam.

It is Good for the Community!

Did you know that millions of cats and dogs are euthanized each year in shelters?

  • Shelters across the country are forced to euthanize many adoptable dogs, cats, and other companion animals each year. Many of these animals were the result of unwanted and unplanned litters, or dogs or cats that seemed “cute” as puppies and kittens but were no longer wanted as they grew into adults. Many of these are even purebred animals.
  • By spaying or neutering your pet, you are doing your part to bring an end to the pet overpopulation problem. Your pet will not have unplanned puppies or kittens that end up in a shelter or on the streets – and that means that the animals already waiting for homes will have that much more of a chance to find one.
